One more round of emails needed

A request came out this evening  regarding the need for one more round of emails to state legislators to support the current transportation package. It doesn’t needs to be long, just a reminder that this is important and you care about its passage. Here is the email. Thanks in advance for your help.

Ferry Riders,

We got this e-mail from Rep. Larry Seaquist this evening on the
Transportation Package:


It’s a go.  House will wade through many hostile amendments in a long
day tomorrow, then vote the bill out of the House on Wednesday.

Governor making a very strong case for moving now; leadership believes
they have a path to 25 votes in the Senate.  On leverage: highest
possible bi-partisan vote in House.

Note: the revenue bills require 60 votes (60%) so House Ds need some
Republican votes.  We will vote to defeat attempts to send the whole
thing to a referendum.

As you wish, you may wish to reinforce the vote, especially with
Republican Members in both Houses.

Very best wishes and thanks hugely for the highly effective lobbying.

    *  HB 1955  Additive trans. funding Clibborn,Moscoso Transportation
    *  HB 1956  Bonds for trans. funding Clibborn,Ryu Transportation

For the current projects in the revenue package and spending bill you
can look them up on the LEAP website. Here is the corrected link: I am also
attaching the lists for your convenience.

On the LEAP website under the subject 'Floor Striking Amendment to SHB
1955' there are 3 documents. Each of these documents contains a
project list for either transit, bike/pedestrian safety, or


Below are the e-mail addresses for the entire House . All we ask is
for a short e-mail asking the Legislators to pass the Transportation
Package as is.  Please send it soonest.

Thank You again for supporting Ferries and keeping our Marine Highways moving.;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
